Dr. Richard Tsien with Colleagues

Faculty in the Department of Neuroscience and Physiology at NYU Langone Health include basic scientists and clinicians who work together to discern the inner workings of the brain.

Informed by a strong legacy of research in systems neuroscience and inspired by new faculty using diverse, cutting-edge methods, our research teams seek to understand the fundamental mechanisms of brain function and disease through collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects.

Many of our scientists are also faculty in the Neuroscience Institute.
